This 2hr tour around Oxford was just fantastic. It was all down to the wonderful, knowledgable and extremely passionate guide Joel. He was brilliant and told the stories with great detail. I felt sorry for anyone else we saw along the way doing tours as they had very sedate guides in comparison. Great work Joel!

Took a very small group of school kids on this tour and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. Hats off to Joel, our guide. He was superb and held his audience captive throughout. Wonderful array of stories and fascinating info and suitable for all ages. Highly recommend this tour.

The tour was interesting for teenagers and up (younger kids would get bored). And it gave me a good and very nice picture of Oxford. Fred was speaking good and loud enough and the pace was good even though the group was pretty big. We did make a reservation@2GBP per person to guarantee participation in the tour - as this... More

Had Frederick for a great two hour tour. He knew his stuff and made it more than just about reeling off facts. Well recommended tour

I'd recommend this tour to anyone who wants to explore the sights, sounds, anecdotes and legends of Oxford. Joel was brilliant, extremely knowledgeable, helpful, full of enthusiasm and quite a character. We enjoyed the tour, it was well paced, we saw the main sights and learnt a lot in the process. I like the fact that it's a tip only... More

Just had an excellent tour with Footprints. Our tour guide Lizzy was very friendly and knowledable (and quite cute in my opinion). She took us around Oxford showing the various colleges that compose Oxford, sharing delightful stories as we went. It was a great way to spend two hours. I highly recommend this tour and don't forget to tip them... More

I was staying with my family(mom, dad, me(18 yrs) and sisters(17,15 yrs)) at a holiday park in the area and we decided to spend a day in Oxford. I think my dad had found out about the footprint tours in advance and as the economical dutchman he is, the 'free of charge' part caught his attention in particular. We figured... More
